I can't wait to see this hit the live server :) My favorite moment of testing was undoubtedly buzzing Kon's town with 9 dragons on the wing :D yes indeedy...such things are far too fun.

I hope the interface gets a small overhaul as well in the future. The font + background make it sometimes hard to read :(. It is not on par with the rest of the game IMHO.

Keep up the good work though !

It's nice to see the fruits of labor taking shape. I hope everyone is as excited about these changes as I am.

You guys are revamping the shadow engine and releasing it today and never did a little video to show the difference ? It's a shame !!

videos are a waste of time actually unless you are dong to squeeze money from people. Plus they delay devs from working on the game

Verry nice this all , but when are you guy's making a auto repair tool for people that bought the game tru download wile the main game files are bugged and corrupted :mad: patching maybe makes it better for people who had the luck to downloading a bug-free basic game wile the rest are constantly crashing i payed 30 euro's for a so called full game? that is just not right! . I dont even notice if a patch works. It would realy help to put a bug free basic version on the site for people to download it and than fill in there Key code they already have, so that atleast the base game is not corrupted.Tthe game files have no repair tool and that sks big time. Downloading the game for reinstall sks, you get 30 sites that all want you to buy there crab, after you can try installing the game and just hope it works?:confused: , this is sad. no way ima pay 30 euro's again to hopefully get the bug free basic game. After i had to delete all my city's couse they could not even load normal, losing a hero and he dont come back, graphx game options that are not responding, texst lines that run outside there boxes, resourses just disapearing, single player mode crashing ect. How about fixing that before adding more bugs to the game. Bisides the fact i did not give up hope yet i would realy get some atention on this or sent me my MONEY BACK!!

actually they are still working on the rest,except people asked for shadow also long time ago. Also if you think this is bad,try stronghold 3,then we can talk about a full game

Well, Arthurion, if you have a bunch of bugs (believe me, it's something we all deal with) post reports about them on the bug reports forum. (and remember to include a log too. There's a sticky about how to do that in the technical suport forum).

And since it seems that this is your first post, I don't suppose you've done any of that yet. Please, don't complain about bugs untill you've actually reported them.

Arthurion - every time you run the game it updates itself. So you DO have all the latest files, in-fact everyone who have ever purchased the game have up-do-date files. If your game crashes a lot this is just another bug which only effects small number of people (for majority of players crashes are extremely rare).

I would suggest you submit a full bug report in the Tech Support forum including DxDiag, Log1.txt file (can be found in your main Dawn of Fantasy folder after a crash). And this will help us address the problems you are having.

lol we didn't had any choice. Joe was staying with his whip near us and 10 hits per match without OOS, double for GPS since he was strike leader :(
